Ha-Le Thai knew that escaping Vietnam for freedom in a cramped, leaking boat would not be easy. She imagined that building a new life in Australia, from little more than a hope and a dream, would stretch her courage and strength to its limits. But the warrior and refugee never guessed that her biggest challenge of all would be motherhood.
A product of two cultures, Ha Le's daughter is educated, confident and excited to introduce her Australian boyfriend to the family. As a protective mother, Ha-Le must overcome beliefs of the past and embrace the future she's fought so hard for. But when a darker secret is revealed, Ha- Le finds herself once more a warrior caught on a battlefield. This time, however, cruel words and stony silences replace beatings and famine; the emotional warfare somehow taking a greater toll.
Past and present collide as Ha Le searches her history to try and make sense of her heartbreak. She might have overcome the threat of death and communism, but she's never truly escaped the ghosts that keep her light from shining. In this tale of strength and vulnerability, love and loss, life journeys and self-discovery, Ha Le must save her family a second time by returning to where her story began.

Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) is an ancient Chinese practice that involves art and science. It has been around for thousands of years. The practice relies on the laws of heaven and earth to help people balance their energies within a space. This is to help them receive fortune and health.
The word “feng” means wind and “shui” means water. Therefore Feng Shui means “wind water”. The local Chinese people place wind that is gentle and water that is clear in one setting. It is to represent good health and harvest.
Feng Shui prides itself on thinking that the land includes Chi. The work Chi has to do with energy. Back in ancient times, the local Chinese people claimed that the energy of the land would be good or bad for others.
Feng Shui comes from the Taoist ideals in order to deal with nature. Taoism deals with religious and philosophical beliefs. Taoism has a strong influence in Asia.
Taoism is also responsible for birthing yin and yang concepts. Yin and yang deal with opposite aspects of a phenomenon or comparing two phenomena. They represent quality in regard to correspondence which is found in most areas of Chinese science and philosophy. An example of this would be ancient Chinese medicine.
In addition to that, the main five Feng Shui elements are also derived from Feng Shui. When doing a Feng Shui analysis, the Compass and the Ba-Gua are used. The Ba-Gua is a grid that is created in the shape of an octagon.
This grid has symbols of the I Ching. In fact, Feng Shui is based on this premise. In order for you to connect the areas of your home with Feng Shui, you need to understand the concept of Ba-Gua.
